As implausible as George W. Bush admitting he made a mistake...


I don't know. Going from being considered a wild animal, a piece of chattel property, 3/5 of a human to having this conversation with you now - IMO - is an extraordinary stretch. All of a sudden, black folks execute an integrated attack on corporate interests that were involved in slavery - I could definitely see corporate America pressuring the government to get African America off their back if a reparation award would relieve the pressure. Maybe giving us some land somewhere is an ideal solution for white America?

I also think this is a plausible way to generate meaningful inertia behind reparations.
